Lyon, 15 May 2023 – Elyse Energy, a pioneering industrial SME in low-carbon molecules, announced on Monday that Ludovic Izoird, through his company Horize SAS, has acquired a stake in the company.

Welcome, Ludovic”, Pascal Pénicaud, Chairman of Elyse Energy.

From an organisational point of view, operations have until now been the responsibility of co-founder Benoît Decourt, who is now in charge of developing Elyse Energy’s products for key accounts, institutional relations and environmental performance, as Partner for Products, Sustainability and Public Affairs. The other partners will retain their functions unchanged.
